Obedience Trial Entry Limits
You can enter one obedience event per day regardless of how many conformation shows you are entered in. However, entering all breed and specialty shows will tend to cause more stress for your dog that will prevent him/her from performing at their best in the obedience trial.
There is no age limit for entering dogs in obedience events but dogs must be at least two weeks old. Dogs sent to the Retirement Couch may still compete in obedience events.

There are about 900 breeds of sheep in the world.
A specialty show may be regional or national. A "Best in Show" win at a national specialty show is tremendously prestigious, indicating that the winning dog or bitch triumphed at a contest which attracted entries from the most serious fanciers of that breed in the country or continent. Some specialty shows attract international entries.
Judges are generally certified to judge one or several breeds, usually in the same group, but a few "all-breed" judges have the training and experience to judge large numbers of breeds.
